Welcome to the web site of the Parish of Essendine, a village of some 365 people on the eastern edge of Rutland. The Parish forms part of the Ryhall and Casterton Ward of Rutland County Council and is represented on the County Council by two County Councillors, Richard Coleman and David Wilby.
The Parish Council consists of a Chairman and five Councillors who meet in Essendine Village Hall. The date and the agenda for the meeting is posted on the notice board and on the meetings calendar on this web site 3 clear days before the meeting date.
As an elected body we are responsible to you, the people we represent. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Look in the Meetings Calendar to find dates for our public meetings.
Where do we get our money from?
Each year a sum of money called a 'precept' is collected through your council tax. This money is used by the Parish Council to improve facilities and services for local people.
If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website then please contact us.
During the current COVID19 outbreak the Parish Council will be using the website to communicate information to Essendine residents and the site will be updated. Please keep an eye on the News Page where up-to-date information will be posted. Please note only the three latest items of news appear on this Home Page.
Please take particular note of details concerning the Community Volunteer Scheme for collecting shopping and medicines for residents unable to leave their homes.
